Osteopathy

What is Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a form of manual therapy that focuses on how the skeleton, muscles and joints, connective tissues, nerves, circulation and internal organs function as a holistic unit.

 

Each person, condition, and injury is unique, so osteopathic treatments will vary from person to person.

 

Osteopaths use a combination of different techniques including massage, stretches, mobilisation and/or manipulation as well as exercise prescription and lifestyle advice to help reduce pain and increase mobility and strength.

 

Not only we deal with pain but, osteopaths can also accompany you along your health journey, optimising your wellbeing by providing you with regular maintenance treatment.

Osteopaths work with their hands using a variety of techniques
  • Massage and stretching techniques

  • Articulation techniques - passive joint mobilisation

  • Muscles energy techniques (MET) - releasing contracted muscles by working against resistance

  • Counter strain techniques - counter stretching restricted joints and muscles whilst in position of comfort in order to achieve relief

  • Functional techniques - gentle joint mobilisation

  • Gentle manipulation - using the body's natural range of motion

  • Visceral techniques - management of conditions affecting internal organs involving gentle and rhythmical stretching the visceral areas

  • Exercises - Often home exercises are given to help you maintain the results of the treatment given to you during your session
